Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - The Springfield Fire Department is teaming up with the American Red Cross to check and install smoke alarms in select Springfield neighborhoods on September 26.

From 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., volunteers from both organizations will go door-to-door to check smoke alarms, install free smoke alarms, and share home fire preparedness information.  This event will begin with a training event, with volunteers going out into neighborhoods shortly after.

Red Cross officials say this event is part of an initiative to reduce home fire-related deaths and injuries by 25%.  For more information and safety tips, visit www.redcross.org/prepare.
